District 7210 News & Updates
Summer, and the new Rotary Year, will soon be here
June has arrived, and that means that summer is officially just a few weeks away!  June also means that the 2016-17 Rotary year is almost complete, but just like the seasons, the Rotary year is virtually eternal.  We may be completing one year, and your Club and the District will be rotating their leadership, yet our Rotary mission to Do GOOD and Have FUN continues! 
 
As I look back upon this past year, the first thing that I must do is to say THANK YOU!  We set some significant District Goals for this year, and it has been incredibly inspiring to see how so many of your Clubs embraced the inherent challenge of these Goals.  It is truly a testament to the incredible power of Rotary that, through Leadership and TEAMwork, you and your Clubs have been able to Do GOOD in a spectacular manner throughout our Hudson Valley communities and in the world beyond.
 
We all knew this wonderful Rotarian as "the Polio Plus Lady", but there was much, much more to our Bunnee. Bernice, “Bunnee” Webb was born September 16, 1927 to Jeanette and Theodore Nemoy and raised in the Bronx.  Bernice attended Hunter College and became an Early Childhood Teacher. Bernice spent her entire career with the NYC Board of Education in the Bronx as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal. She was named the Principal of a new school in the Bronx, PS 160X, in the early 1970’s and remained as its Principal until she retired. Bernice was an advocate for children throughout her career never being afraid to stand up and speak for them. Bernice was also a truly terrific Rotarian and Humanitarian. Her support and promotion for the mission of Rotary International, a worldwide service organization, was demonstrated by her involvement in many of Rotary’s initiatives, especially the elimination of polio throughout the world. Bernice served as the District Governor for the Hudson Valley Rotarians in 2000-2001. She was 89 years old, and left a lasting positive impression on all who crossed her path. Bernice loved to entertain family and friends in her home with good food and much good humor. Bernice’s love of country and love of her Jewish background were always evident. Bernice is survived by her loving sister Millicent, Mickie, Maurer. Graveside services will be held Tuesday May 30, 2017, 1:00PM at Beth EL Cemetery, 735 Forest Avenue, Paramus, New Jersey. Memorial contributions may be made in Bernice’s memory to the Rotary Foundation for the Eradication of Polio.
